Before we start diving into each team we need to go over some ground rules. When you view each team’s table you will notice some players that are no longer with the team.

The answer to the question in the title seemed a little more obvious if this was posed last offseason. Justin Upton was considered one of MLB’s few “five tool” players being he could hit for average, power, steal bases, play solid defense and blessed with a strong throwing arm. Dexter Fowler, on the other hand, was a player the Colorado Rockies liked, but to...
